David Maldonado is a Spanish guitarist and composer from San Diego California, USA. Raised in a family where playing music was as natural as breathing, David Maldonado’s early influences encompassed a broad range of Spanish Classical music. At only 8 years old, David was already an accomplished violinist, immersed in the world of Bach and Mozart but at 10 years old he felt the guitar was more natural and by the age 14, David was performing classical guitar concerts as a young virtuoso and began to study under the Royal Family of the Classical Guitar (Knighted by the King of Spain).

David has toured the world from Paris to Tokyo and has recorded parts for numerous movies in Hollywood. He has also composed two original Symphonies and has sold out theaters in major cities across the United States. His music reflects the beauty and structure inherent in traditional classical composition, at the same time bringing forth the passion, upbeat rhythms and challenging gypsy scales of Flamenco. The combination of these, along with David's incredible energy and stage presence invokes a passionate response from audiences of all ages, offering an enticing journey into this unique infusion of Spanish guitar styling.
